Drove by the area and Square One looked like a good place to grab a bite. Went inside and the girl behind the counter said that on the weekends, there was full service. So I told her I was going to sit outside and she said 'great, will be out to take your order." Nearly 7 minutes and no service,... More

Everything on the menu sounds delicious. I ordered French Toast (found it on a top 12 french toast in LA), Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, and the Egg breakfast. With a mimosa of course. The french toast and pancakes were both wonderful. The french toast was so good I didn't need to add syrup. It was soft, moist, and flavorful. This for... More

This place was good but not great. My breakfast was the closest to full English.... the poached eggs were hard and the portion small, really small for the money. My son liked the pancakes and my partner liked the eggs benedict.... my daughter did not think much of the French toast. Overall i would say ok, but not great. We... More

This is a small restaurant with a very nice patio. Good service. For a little less than $5 you can order a fresh coconut that is excellent for the heat of August. The food was good but nothing extraordinary.

We visited this place for breakfast while in Los Angeles. And once we went the first day, we kept going back. The french toast is excellent. I can't comment on the other menu choices because the french toast was too good for me to choose something else. When you find a good thing, stick with it :-)

Big portions, great atmosphere, inside & outside setting. Inventive menu & Mexican coke. Also very close to the Scientology building which is worth a look in for the novelty!

Absolutely loved it here - a lovely surprise my husband organised for my 40th birthday brunch - such a zen place with an amazing menu choice of fresh food - would highly recommend if in LA.

This small restaurant is excellent for breakfast, everything was outstanding, fresh orange juice, nice pancakes and good ingredients to prepare the dishes. Huevos Rancheros and Sandwich's were really good. I will go there again next time.

My wife and I saw this place in a list of popular breakfast places, and we decided to give it a try. The place is in East Hollywood, in a pretty densely populated area, so parking can be a challenge. Across the street is a huge Scientology building, which made for some interesting conversation. Once inside, we found the staff... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
